A Confederate Flag Rally in Columbia, S.C. quickly turned into political advocacy for Donald Trump. I’ve said it time and time again but it is worth repeating that many, not all but certainly most, Confederate Heritage advocates are consumed by presentism (anachronistic introduction of present-day ideas and perspectives into depictions or interpretations of the past). It is not so much about protecting “heritage,” as they claim, but advocating a political view point which they earnestly believe has historical precedent. A precedent which only “heritage” advocates see as they view the past through the lens of their political agenda.
